Jubilation is a unique beast – an acapella gospel choir with a rock & roll heart...

And we’re thrilled to finally be at Takapuna’ s iconic PumpHouse Theatre! Strictly limited season - one night only, as part of the Auckland Fringe.

We sing soul, blues and country-infused gospel, from the songbooks of Nina Simone, Tom Waits, Curtis Mayfield, Don McGlashan, Isaac Hayes, Blind Willie Jackson and Emmy Lou Harris.

The choir’s diverse ensemble includes several professional musicians, a psychologist, a builder, a maker of super yachts, a handful of actors and a lecturer in Russian.

Jubilation has performed all over New Zealand to crowds large and small - from 10,000 plus on the main stage at WOMAD to an intimate 60-something at The Old Cheese Factory near Arrowtown.

Highlights of 2016 include: Nelson Opera in the Park at Trafalgar Park; Kiwis On Board at Silo Park, alongside artists such as Neil Finn (an event to welcome refugees to Aotearoa); APRA Silver Scroll Awards at Vector Arena, with break-through singer-songwriter Campbell and Waiheke International Jazz Festival.

They can also be heard singing backing vocals behind Hollie Smith on ‘Bathe In The River’, Don McGlashan’ s Silver Scroll award-winning hit from the movie ‘Number 2’.

"This choir is probably the most versatile selection of singers in New Zealand and can only be described as spectacular! Sam Airy." - ‘NZ Musician’ magazine

"Jubilation have brought heart and soul - and a damned fine choir and soloists - to festival audiences up and down the country." - Philip Tremewan - Festival Director - Wanaka, Tauranga, Taupo & Chch.

"With voices raised to testify, celebrate, console and sound a warning, this choir will Move you and shake you." - Liam Ryan, Artistic Director- National Jazz Festival
